I am a hobbyist artist who wants to move up to making animated shorts. Harmony looks like what I’d want, but I’m very green and have a LOT of questions.
If I purchase Essentials, which seems ideal since I’m a beginner and it’s within my budget, can I use it to make frame by frame 2D animation? By that, I mean can I import drawings I scan into my PC to the Harmony program, or is importing images/drawings only possible with a tablet to directly import the image? I ask because I use a scanner and basic editing software to polish my drawings.
It seems like good software for someone like me who wants to capture the traditional animated look, but could I use it to import one image at a time and then play it together on a timeline to make a fluid animation? I realize I can do more with this software, but starting from the simplest method and working my way up seems better for someone like me. I’d just like to know if this software makes this possible.
Please forgive me for being such a novice, but I am hungry for answers and willing to learn. I eagerly await your feedback.
